Pizza Dough Method
If you don’t have much time, grab a premade pizza base at your local grocery store, or create your own homemade pizza dough following the simple steps below.
- Whisk the lukewarm water and yeast in a plastic or glass jug. Let the mixture stand for approx. five minutes.
- Add the salt and flour in a large bowl. Create a hollow centre in the flour. Slowly pour the liquid yeast mixture and oil.
- Using your hands or a mixer, mix the dough until smooth. Pour dough on a lightly floured work surface and then knead by hand for five minutes.
- Place dough into lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Sit in a warm place for roughly 30 minutes to an hour, to rise until it doubles in size.
- Fold the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead gently by hand for around five minutes or until smooth.
- Divide the dough roughly into equal amounts. Roll out pizza bases for the desired size.
- Spread some flour on kitchen bench before rolling, in order to prevent sticking.
TIP: We have other dough recipes if you would like to try your hand at sourdough, poolish or more.
Barbecue Pizza Sauce Method
You can either make your own pizza sauce following the simple steps below, or you can purchase a pizza sauce at your local store.
- Add ingredients together in small saucepan on low heat.
- Whisk all ingredients until well combined and bring mixture to a simmer.
- Partially cover the saucepan and let the sauce simmer approximately 10-15 minutes.
- Stir occasionally, until it has thickened.
- Cool the sauce to room temperature and then placing in fridge to cool completely.
Making the sauce the day before and storing it in the refrigerator is a great time-saving tip.
Preparing BBQ Hawaiian Pizza
Preheat your oven to roughly 500 degrees.
Roll out the dough to either slightly smaller than your pizza stone or tray.
Alternatively, if you have a pizza peel, roll out to be smaller than that.
You start by spreading the sauce around. This pizza calls for BBQ Sauce. Spread the BBQ Sauce evenly using the back of a large spoon or ladle.
Then start adding the largest ingredients, then work your way down. The last is any cheese topping, such as Mozzarella, which you should evenly cover the other toppings with, and then finally any herbs.
Toppings to put on this pizza are;
- Grilled Pineapple
I find this pizza mouthwatering on its own, or why not pair it with another pizza as well?
Put the BBQ Hawaiian pizza on the middle shelf of the oven and wait for approximately 10 minutes.
In 10 minutes, open oven door and check.
The pizza should take roughly 15 minutes to cook, adjust time to cook to personal taste.
About Grilled Pineapple
Grilled pineapple is a unique and delicious topping for pizza. It adds a sweet, smoky flavor that can be enjoyed by both adults and children. The process of grilling the pineapple helps to caramelize its natural sugars, giving it an unbeatable sweetness that complements savory ingredients like cheese and pepperoni.
With just a few simple steps, you can transform plain old pizza into something truly special. When preparing grilled pineapple for your pizza, start by preheating your grill to medium-high heat. Cut the pineapple into thick slices and lightly coat them with oil or butter before placing them on the hot grate.
When making BBQ Hawaiian Pizza, I suggest you just use what you have available, without spending any money. My recommended basic pizza tool list is…
Wooden Rolling Pin
Many people prefer hand stretching, however every cook really should have a good wooden roller nearby too.
You will find having a seive such a useful element for pizza making as well as all your baking. It’s great to filter all flours through a fine mesh sieve, to make sure they’re ready for use.
Good quality metal or plastic bench scrapers make it so much esier to both cut your dough, and scrape your bench. I prefer plastic to avoid scratching my bench.
Barbecue sauce is a sauce used as a topping, marinade, condiment or basting for Beef, Chicken and pork cooked on a barbecue, or in BBQ style cooking. Most BBQ sauces are vegan, and made with Vinegar, onion powder, Tomato Paste, liquid smoke, mustard and Black Pepper.
It is understood BBQ sauce was invented in the 17th century at a Dominican missionary where they used Pepper and lime Juice to flavor meat on the barbeque.

Can I use the pan that came in the stove for making pizza?
Possibly, however I always recommend using a pizza stone in your typical kitchen oven, rather than an oven pan. Most oven pans have high sides, and make it hard for the base to get cooked through thoroughly. A pizza stone solves this issue. Short answer? Try it and see!

The first ever recorded pizza delivery occurred in 1889, when Queen Margherita of Savoy fell ill after eating rotten food in Naples. The Queen and her husband, King Umberto I of Italy, were hungry and requested that authentic Italian pizza be sent to them.
